CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1885. 

VENUS IS THE RULING PLA.NET THIS YEAR. 



The Yeak in General. — Will be rather drj r , 
taking the whole year together; it will also be sultry 
and tolerably warm. 

Spkino. — If the solar year continues warm and 
pleasant till late, there will be a late Spring, gener- 
ally temperate, and is favorable to all kinds of grain. 
When the winter grain is forward and large, the sheep 
may be pastured on it without injury ; they may also 
be kept on the meadows longer than other years. 

Summer. — If the Spring rains do not continue too 
long, there will be a warm, sultry summer, as it gen- 
erally is ; if, however, there is much rain in the 
spring, there will be a dry, hot summer, which, how- 
ever, is not often the case. In this case there will be 
good vintage; otherwise there is danger that much 
hay and grain will spoil on the fields. 

Fall. — This season is generally warm and pleas- 
ant, but will not last long ; hence the necessity of 
attending early to the fall work. Winter-grain should 
be sown early, the grape vines covered, and winter 
fruit secured, as generally by the end of November, 
Winter will set in. 



Winter. — In the commencement is tolerably 
dry; afterwards, especially from about the 12th of 
February, to the beginning of Spring, quite wet, very 
heavy showers, which often prove injurious to per- 
sons, buildings, and cattle. 

Cultivation op Summer Grain.— When the 
Spring is wet, and there are rains almost every day, 
the grain should be put out as early as possible, as 
there will be a dry, hot Summer, without rain for 
several weeks. 

Cultivation op Winter Grain. — Be the year 
as it will, the corn and wheat will seldom produce 
much besides straw, unless the grain is pastured down 
in the Spring. 

Autumn Seeding. — Winter Grain should be 
sown in good time on account of the early winter 
which will follow. 

Fruit. — If it is very wet in the Spring, there will 
be very little of any kind of fruit. If it is about 
usually temperate, there will be plenty of apples, 
plums, nuts, cherries, pears and acorns.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC 



[1885 



TO OUR PATRONS. 



A right good year, 

And a merry good year ! 
And a joy for each day the year has in it ; 

And a smile to beguile 

All sorrow the while, 
And the love of all, with the gift to win it ! 

— Sigourney. 

As we look around us we behold the moun- 
tains and hills changed from their deep summer 
green to the beautiful autumnal tints, which, 
though lovely to behold, remind us that time 
has been passing, and that the close of anoth- 
er year is approaching; and 

' ' Like as the waves make toward the pebbled shore, 
So have our minutes hastened to their end." 

We are not thus only reminded of the passing 
of time, but also of its value, and the import- 
ance of spending it aright. Franklin says, 
" If time be of all things the most precious, 
wasting time must be the greatest prodigali- 
ity, since lost time is never found again; and 
what we call time enough alway r s proves little 
enough." Could we realize time in all its 
worth, every moment would be grasped as a 
most precious Jewell, and none would be wast- 
ed in a way that is worse than loss. But as 
that which is past cannot be recalled, the best 
we can do is to improve the present and hope 
and prepare for the future. To this we now 
look 

The year that will soon close has been one 
fraught with unusual blessings. Especially 
can this be said of our own native land. We 
have enjoyed more than an ordinary fruitful 
season so that there is no necessity" for any re- 
al want or suffering for the necessaries of 
ph}'sical life. Our barns and store-houses are 
filled with provisions, which can be had by all 
for a reasonable amount of labor or compensa- 
tion. We have not been visited by any gener- 
al scourges, in the way of fatal diseases, and 
we have most graciously been spared from in- 
ternal irruptions which lead to war and mis- 
ery. For all these blessings we are indebted to 
our indulgent and gracious Father in heaven. 
Our spiritual blessings have also been cor- 
respondingly great, and elicit from us our 
most heartfelt gratitude. Considering the im- 
portance of the work and what ought to have 
been done, we have reason to hide our faces in 
the dust. But comparing the past with the 
present, we are still encouraged that so much 
progress has been made in the good work, and 
of that we have been tiying to go forward. 



As the year advances we hope that many of 
you may have the satisfaction of feeling that 
} r ou have made some advancement in the Di- 
vine life, and that you can retrospect the past 
with the assurance that you have done, at 
least, something that will stand to your credit 
in the day of reckoning, and that you may 
open this new almanac with the determina- 
tion, that, by God's grace, the year 1885 shall 
be, by you, more fully devoted to the promo- 
tion of your own spiritual good as well as try- 
ing to assist others to a better life. 

In compiling the Brethren's Almanac for 
1885 we have no marked changes to make, but 
shall try and adapt it as nearly as we can to 
the wants of our Brotherhood and all others 
that may desire a good Christian Family Al- 
manac. Thanking all for the liberal patron- 
age received in the past and asking the same 
for the present, we close by wishing to one and 
all heaven's choicest blessings. 



OUR ANNUAL ADDRESS. 



Again we come brother pilgrim ! And how 
happy we are to be permitted once more to en- 
ter your opened door and take the accustomed 
place in your family circle. Since our last vis- 
it, a year has gone and another come and with 
the passing of time, many of those who lived 
and enjoj^ed with us, have gone to fairer climes 
and more enjoyable scenes. 

Old 1884, with his tottering steps and 
threadbare garments, has fallen the victim of 
time, while thousands of our fellow brethren 
have been numbered with the nations of the 
dead. They have gone, gone, O, where? To 
reap the fruit of their labors whether good or 
bad, and we are left for what? To prepare for 
a better life, and now is the time. 

May you, dear pilgrim, make this, the com- 
mencement of another year, a bright page in 
3 T our histoiy; a time that you can point back 
to with pleasure as the commencement of a 
higher Christian life, and may you go forward 
with renewed zeal and courage. 

And to 3'ou dear sinners who are without 
the fold, there will never be a better time to 
make the all important step to enter the vine- 
yard of the Lord than 7iow. Time is short and 
those who are given most have none to spare. 
O, waste not the golden moments. They are 
too precious. Eternal issues hinge upon them, 
and if gone unimproved they are lost forever. 

And now may the God of love and mercy be 
with us and grant to us a } r ear of plenty, a 



1885.]

year of prosperity, a year of health and peace, 
and a year of grace and salvation. 

During the 3 r ear that has passed, business 
engagements have held the minds of many in 
suspense. Some have gained their points and 
are satisfied, while others, in their own estima- 
tion, have miserably failed, and feel that their 
labors have been spent in vain. Yet time rolls 
on and those who would redeem the past and 
make amends, and gain the crown must look 
forward, and now is a suitable time to lay our 
plans for future operations. First of all, if not 
already clone so, seek the Kingdom of God. 
With this and the promised blessings to be 
added, there is nothing to hinder and our life 
work will prove a success — And may the face 
of our beneficent Father smile upon us during 
the year 1885, so that when it, too, shall have 
passed away we may enjoy the blessed assur- 
ance that it was well spent and that we may 
enjoy the fruits of our labors. 



THE MOST ANCIENT MANUSCRIPTS. 



The style of writing indicates the age of 
manuscripts. Recently, certain manuscripts 
recovered from the ruins of Herculaneum have 
been unrolled and deciphered with the utmost 
care, and fifteen folio volumes of them have 
been published. Now we know that Hercula- 
neum and Pompeii were overwhelmed in the 
year a. D. 70, by an eruption of Vesuvius; and 
hence there can be no dispute in regard to the 
age of the manuscripts rescued from these ru- 
ins. They must be more than 1800 years old. 
But these manuscripts are written in "uncial" 
letters, very nearly resembling the letters used 
in those manuscript copies of the New Testa- 
ment which have been universally esteemed 
the most cuicient. This style of letters has not 
been used for many centuries; hence t lie an- 



tiquity of these manuscripts is proved beyond 
a possibilit} r of dispute. 

Among the "uncial" manuscripts, five arc 
generally distinguished from the rest as of pri- 
mary importance. Of these, the Alexandrian, 
— known as Codex A, was originally discov- 
ered at Alexandria, and was sent to King- 
Charles L, in 1628, seventeen years after King- 
James' version was printed. It is now in the 
British Museum. The style of the letters in- 
dicates that this manuscript is of great antiq- 
uity, and its date is fixed hy critics at about 
a. d. 450. It is much mutilated, — twent3 T -four 
chapters of the first Gospel, two of the fourth, 
and eight of one of the Epistles being missing. 

Codex B., in the Vatican Library at Eorae. 
supposed to have been written between a. d. 
500 and a. d. 400, is said to be the oldest vel- 
lum manuscript known. This was not allowed 
to be copied till 1868, when an edition was is- 
sued in fac simile tjqoe, representing it line for 
line, and letter for letter. The condition of 
this is much more perfect. 

A third manuscript is in the National Li- 
brary at Paris, whither it was brought by 
Catherine de Medeci. This is called a " pa- 
limpsest;" from a Greek word which signilies 
to rub or scrape again, — applied to a parchment 
from which one writing had been erased to 
make room for another. This manuscript is 
known as the " Codex Ephrsemi." Parchment 
being scarce andv valuable, in the twelfth cen- 
tury the original writing was sponged off, and 
some productions of Ephrsem Syrus written in 
its stead. Notwithstanding this, by the care- 
ful application of chemicals the earlier writing 
has been brought out again, so that the origi- 
nal manuscript has now been deciphered. This 
manuscript is assigned to the early part of the 
fifth century. 

The fourth manuscript is Codex Bcz;e in 
the Public Library of the University at Cam- 
bridge, England, it having been presented by 
Theodore Beza in 1581. This is the least val- 
uable, as it is quite incomplete. It belongs to 
the sixth century. 

The Codex Aleph, found Eel). 1th. L859, in 
the Convent of St. Catherine near Mt. Sinai, 

by Teschendorf, and published by him in hso^. 
is the most valuable of the five, as it contains the 
New Testament complete. This is judged to 
have been written between a. d. 300 and a. d. 
400; and hundreds of corrections which crit- 
ics had previously made in the text by com- 
paring other manuscripts, have been confirmed 
by this ancient and independent witness, which

had lain for ages in the library of that eastern 
monastery. 

To these may be added, as specially valua- 
ble, Codex Claromontanus, of the sixth centu- 
ry, which contains the Epistles of Paul. This 
was used by Beza in 1582, and is deposited in 
the National Library at Paris. 

These manuscripts carry us back very near 
the apostles' days; for they might easily have 
been copied from the originals, or from manu- 
scripts that had been copied from them; and 
by comparing these with the hundreds of oth- 
er manuscripts, Lectionaries, quotations, and 
ancient translations, it is not difficult for learn- 
ed and studious men to ascertain whether the 
New Testament Books have been seriously cor- 
rupted in being handed down to our own times. 
Of course any corruptions or mistakes which 
have occurred during the last 1500 years are 
excluded at the outset by the fact that we 
have manuscripts that date back as far as 
that; and if these manuscripts, old as they 
are, have errors, they also may, in rare instan- 
ces, be corrected from later manuscripts which 
may have been copied from manuscripts older 
than any which are yet discovered. — If. L. 
Hastings. 



HUMAN SYMPATHY. 



Blessed indeed are those who have love as 
the guardian angel surrounding them, and 
whose days are rendered happy, whose skies 
are full of sunshine, because of the sympa- 
thetic companionship of the loved and Loving. 
In the midst of their own heart-safety such 
may be reminded that they should be pitiful 
to those who are desolate and alone, whether 
they have made shipwreck for themselves or 
been struck by the storms of fate, or — worst 
of all — abandoned by those who were pledged 
to guard, to guide, and to protect. 



A MOTHER'S LOVE. 



A mother's love! How lightly do we often 
value and little do we appreciate a kind, lov- 
ing mother! What a fountain of pure un- 
selfish loves rises up from her generous, loving 
heart! Who will love us as a mother does? 
And will surfer, work, and toil for us, depriv- 
ing themselves of every comfort, in order that 
we may be well cared for and spared all anxie- 
ties and cares of life? No one but " mother." 
We may have a kind father, gentle and loving 
brothers and sisters, and, when we grow older, 
and leave the paternal roof, we may be fortu- 
nate in securing a kind husband or gentle 
wife, and may be blessed with dutiful and 
happy children ; but no one will ever exercise 
toward us the same kind, patient love and gen- 
tle forbearance as a mother. How kind we 
should be to her ! We should share her anxi- 
eties, lighten the burden of her cares, and 
strive to make the burden of her declining 
years happy. It is a debt, as well as a duty, 
we owe to her, and it is happily in the power 
of all to pay it. Think of the many da} r s of 
weary toil and the years of unselfish love and 
patient devotion she has given to us, and then 
let us ask ourselves if we can do too much for 
"mother." 



MAN. 

Man is a creature put into this life to be 
awakened and educated with reference to him- 
self and to his fellows. He is put here to be 
educated through the bod} r and through mat- 
ter into ascendency over them, and to be edu- 
cated respecting his character, for the sake of 
his condition hereafter. In order therefore to 
judge of what is good and what is bad, and 
among bad things what are worse and what 
are better, and among good things what are 
best and what are least good, we must consid- 
er the relation of things to the design and 
destiny of human existence. That which 
tends to make the most of :i man, and to make 
him quickest in the things for which he was 
created, and which is most efficient in prepar- 
ing him for harmonization in himself and so- 
cial harmonization, and for immortality and 
glory, is the best: whereas that which most 
stands in the way of these things is the worst 
— but nothing is indifferent which has a bear- 
ing on man's development lor time and for 
eternity.

22. If a spicier or dish gets burnt in using, 
do not scrape it, but put a little water and 
ashes in, and let it get warm ; it will come off 
nicely. 

23. Paint a lantern globe and varnish, lay- 
on transfer pictures to set on 3-our brackets. 
Serve tin plates the same way for card receiv- 
ers. Quite handsome. 

24. Be true to yourself, your family, and 
the outside world. 

25. Wash 3-our windows with a wing instead 
of a cloth, and look out on a clean, well-kept 
yard. 



A CURIOUS LEGEND. 



When Adam was far advanced in years and 
near the point of death, he sent his son to the 
angel Michael, who kept the gate of Paradise, 
to pray for the oil of meixry, so that he could 
be healed. The angel answered that it could 
not be until fifty-five hundred years, but he ga ve 
Seth a branch of the tree of which Adam had 
eaten, bidding him plant it on Mount Leba- 
non, and when it bore fruit his father should 
be healed. Seth planted the branch on his 
fathers grave; it took root and grew, and 
from it were made Aaron's rod and Moses' 
staff, with which he struck the rock and 
sweetened the waters of Marah. It also form- 
ed the pole on which the brazen serpent was 
lifted up. At last it came into the hands of 
Solomon, who used it in building his palace; 
but it continually resisted the efforts of the 
builders to adjust it. Now it was too long, 
and then again too short. The builders be- 
coming angry they threw it into a marsh, so 
that it might serve as a bridge. The Queen of 
Sheba would not walk upon it, and then told 
Solomon that upon it should be suspended the 
men through whose death the Kingdom should 
be destroyed. Solomod then had it buried 
deep in the ground where the pool of liethes- 
da was dug, and from the virtnres of this tree 
healing properties were imparted to the wa- 
ters. After it had been buried three hundred 
years it arose on the surface of the water, and 
tho .lews took it and made of it the eross of 
our Saviour.

GOODNESS. 



Nothing makes a man so in love with purity 
s purity. Many a man has been lifted out of 
ebasing sins against which he has vainly 
truggled by coming to know and love a pure, 
weet woman. It is the sight of embodied 
;oodness that makes us want to be good. Many 
I mother by the quiet usefulness of her life fills 
ler children with a desire to be like her, that 
Qakes them in their turn unselfish. There 
re obscure men and women who hardly in 
heir lives utter a conscious word of teaching, 
fho, by their example, do more to make peo- 
>le around them gentle and truthful and 
>hrist-like than an}^ preacher can do. It is not 
hose who talk about goodness, but those who 
re good that are the light of the world. 



USELESS DAUGHTERS. 



The poorest girls in the world are those who 
lave never been taught to work. There are 
housands of them. Rich parents have petted 
hem; they have been taught to despise labor 
ind depend upon others for a living, and are 
lerfectly helpless. The most forlorn woman 
lelongs to this class. It is the duty of pa- 
rents to protect their daughters from this de- 
plorable condition. They do them a great 
vrong if they neglect it. Every daughter 
should be taught to earn her own living. The 
•ich as well as the poor require this training, 
rhe wheel of fortune rolls swiftly round — the 
ich are likely to become poor, and the poor 
rich. Skill added to labor is no disadvantage 
to the rich, and is indispensable to the poor. 
Well-to-do parents must educate their daugh- 
ters to work; no reform is more imperative 
than this. 



GOLDEN MOMENTS. 



How sorry one would be for a man who, 
starting out upon a journey, had his pockets 
full of golden coin which, one by one, had 
slipped through some unmended hole or rent, 
so that when he came to the end of his trip he 
had not one left, but lay down upon his bed a 
beggar! How strictly we would look to our 
own pockets after hearing the tale, and make 
very sure that what coin we had should be 
well spent, or hoarded carefully, and not scat- 
tered in the road-side dust! Yet we start 
upon our lives, each one of us, with a store of 
golden moments of which we keep little ac- 
count. Rapidly they slip away through the 
rents ot sloth or ignorance. Many a one, rich 
in all the golden moments of seventy years, 
lies down at last scarcely able to remember 
how he has fritted and scattered them, know- 
ing only that he has no more — that all are gone, 
and that he cannot say that he has purchased 
anything of use to himself or another with 
what might have bought so much. 



A CHEERFUL WIFE. 



What a blessing to a household is a merry, 
cheerful woman — one whose spirits are not af- 
fected by wet days or little disappointments — 
one whose milk of human kindness does not 
grow sour in the sunshine of prosperity ! Such 
a woman, in the darkest hours, brightens the 
house like a piece of sunshiny weather. The 
magnetism of her smiles and the electrical 
brightness of her looks and movements infect 
every one. The children go to school with the 
sense of something great to be achieved; the 
husband goes into the world in a conqueror's 
spirit. No matter how people anno}' and wor- 
ry him through the day, far off her presence 
shines, and he whispers to himself, " At home 
I shall find rest!" So day by day she literal- 
ly renews his strength and energ}\ And, if 
you know a man with a beaming face, a kind 
heart, and a prosperous business, in nine cases 
out of ten you will find he has a wife of this 
kind. 



Worth Remembering. — It is not what we 
earn, but what we can save, that makes us 
rich. It is not what we eat, but what we di- 
gest, that makes us fat. It is not what we 
read, but what we remember, that makes us 
learned. All this is very simple, but it is 
worth remembering.

CHARACTER. 



The character is formed by the personal hab- 
ts of daily life as much as by the thoughts 
md principles inculcated. The careless and 
mmethodical in action will scarcely be the ac- 
curate observer, the correct reporter, the relia- 
)le authority, or the steadfast supporter in 
)ther matters. The loose ends of daily habits 
epeat themselves in the character; the graver 
-irtues than the prosaic qualities of method, 
i)rder, regularity and the like follow on those 
labits of forethought and observation which 
jlder people try so hard to inculcate in the 
'ounger, and the } r ounger try so hard not to 
earn. Also no one can exaggerate the impor- 
ance of daily combatting the sins and frailties 
hat most easily beset us. To give way to-day 
:o a fit of inconsiderate selfishness, unfounded 
suspicion, irrational anger, or careless self-in- 
lulgence makes controll all the harder to-mor- 
row, and the folly committed now all the easier 
:o repeat then. The character is not formed 
ov great leaps, by one strong impression, by a 
few striking experiences, but by small repeat- 
ed touches, by the constant rippling of daily 
thoughts, the minute shaping of daily habits. 



He that injures another injures himself more 
— not in his outward estate, it may be, but in 
his inward manhood. He who by carelessness, 
by heedlessness, or by hopefulness, defrauds 
another by borrowing what he cannot pay, de- 
frauds himself even more that he does that 
other. He may not diminish his own material 
possessions as he does those of his neighbor, 
but he diminishes the moral elements that arc 
in him, and reduces that stock by which he is 
to enjoy old age in this life and Heaven in the 
life to come. 



THE BRIGHT SIDE. 



Look on the bright side. It is the right 
side. The times be may hard, but it will make 
them no easier to wear a gloomy and sad 
countenance. It is the sunshine, and not the 
cloud, that gives beauty to the flower. There 
is always before or around us that which 
should cheer and fill the heart with warmth 
and gladness. The sky is blue ten times 
where it is black once. You have troubles, it 
may be. So have others. None are free from 
them — and perhaps it is as well that none 
should be. They give sinew and tone to life — 
fortitude and courage to man. That would be 
a dull sea, and the sailor would never acquire 
skill, where there is nothing to disturb its 
surface. It is the duty of every one to ex- 
tract all the happiness and enjoyment he can 
from within and without him; and, above all, 
he should look on the bright side. What 
though things do look a little dark? The lane 
will have a turning, and night will end in 
broad day. In the long run the great balance 
rights itself. What appears ill becomes well 
— that which appears wrong, right. 



FIRST STEP. 



There is no step so long as the first step in 
any direction, especially a wrong one. Having 
once taken it, you are veiy likely to go far- 
ther. One who steals a penny will remember 
it when he thinks of stealing a sovereign. If 
he steals the sovereign first, when he is tempt- 
ed by thousands he will remember he is al- 
ready a thief. A perfectly innocent person 
dreads the soil of any sin upon his soul, but 
after the slightest smirch he cannot say, "I 
am clean." The vulgar proverb, " One might 
as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb," 
means a great deal. Often the lamb was sto- 
len years before, and now why not take the 
sheep? An idle word, half-oath, half-exclama- 
tion, leads the boy to swearing. Once having 
sworn, he will swear again. The first step may 
not be much in itself, but in its relation to our 
lives it is a giant's stride. It is well to re- 
member it. 



Reading is well compared to filling a grana- 
ry witli grain, and thinking to sowing seed. 
We should read, not to contradict or confute, 
but to weigh and consider. Meditation is ac- 
tive; reverie, idle thought.

SMALL THINGS. 



Neglect of small things is the rock on 
vhich the great majority of the human race 
lave split. Human life consists of a succes- 
sion of small events, each of which is com- 
mratively unimportant, and yet the happiness 
tnd success of every man depends upon the 
nanner in which these small events are dealt 
Irith. Character is built up on little things — 
!5 ittle things well and honorably transacted. 
5 The success of a man in business depends on 
attention to little things. The comfort of 
1 household is the result of small things well 
irranged and duly provided for. Good gov- 
ernment can only be accomplished in the same 
I (ray — by well regulated provisoins for the do- 



ns: of small things. 



TO BE REMEMBERED. 



That salt fish are quickest and best freshen- 
2d by soaking in sour milk. 

That cold rain water and soap will remove 
machine grease from washable fabrics. 

That fish may be scaled much easier by 
first dipping them into boiling w r ater for a 
minute. 

That fresh meat, beginning to sour, will 
sweeten if placed out of doors in the cool air 
over night. 

That milk which has been changed ma} r be 
sweetened or rendered fit for use again by stir- 
ring in a little soda. 

That boiling starch is much improved b}^ 
the addition of sperm, or salt, or both, or a 
little gum arabic, dissolved. 

That a tablespoonful of turpentine, boiled 
with your white clothes, will greatly aid the 
whiting process. 

That clear boiling water will remove tea 



stains; pour the water through the stain, and 
tli us prevent it spreading. 

That salt will ctardle new milk; hence, in 
preparing milk porridge, gravies, etc., the salt 
should not be added until the dish is prepar- 
ed. 

That kerosene will make your tea-kettle as 
bright as new. Saturate a woolen rag and rub 
with it. It will remove stains from the clean 
varnished furniture. 

That beeswax and salt will make your rusty 
flatirons as clean and smooth as glass. Tie a 
lump of beeswax in a rag and keep it for that 
purpose. When the irons are hot, rub with 
the wax rag, then scour them with a paper or 
cloth sprinkled with salt. 



TEMPER. 



A cheerful temper in a house is like per- 
petual sunshine, gladening and enlivening 
ever}^ one, in the presence of which you forget 
your troubles and would be ashamed to re- 
member your annoyances; but a bad temper 
spoils everything. Offence taken at airy noth- 
ings, impatience under unavoidable worries, 
small things made into great ones by the mag- 
nifying power of suspicion, sullenness, irrita- 
bility, ill-humor — who can say that all this 
has no influence? You might as well deny the 
stinging power of a midge or the penetrating 
power of dust as deny the depressing effect of 
ill-humor wherever it is found and the corres- 
ponding good influence of sweet temper. Also, 
the imitation of either the one or the other, 
as it may chance which rules, is sure to break 
out in the younger and weaker of the family. 



Closed in another page 

In the book of the vanished years : 

Dare we again, with its joys and fears, 
Recall that begone age ? 
Nay ! for we hope that in future days, 

However bright the past, 
Each hour may prove brighter, and every year 

Be happier than the last. 
Regret for misdeeds may come o'er us, 

Grief for the good not done ; 
But we trust in the time still before us. 

In the years that are still to run. 



Let your thoughts be lit and suitable for 
the subject. Every dayjHave higher thoughts 
of God, lower thoughts <)f self, kinder thoughts 
of your brethren, and more hopeful thoughts of 
all around vou.

QUERIES FOR CHRISTIAN PARENTS. 



1. Do you say grace at the table? 

2. Do you have family worship daily, read- 
ng the Scriptures and praying? 

3. Do you teach your children, as soon as 
,hey are teachable, to pray daily, on arising in 
he morning, as well as on retiring at night? 

4. Do you either take or send your children 
o Sabbath-school? 

5. Do you require them to go to hear the 
reaching of the Word? 

6. Are 3'ou as careful of their spiritual and 
■eligious training as of their physical and 
nental? 

7. In a word, are you training your children 
<o God and eternity? 

8. You ought to be able to answer "yes" to 
jach of these questions. Will you not ask 
jod to bless and help you to do your duty 
owards the souls the He has committed to 
*our care? 



WHAT TO DO IN AN EMERGENCY. 



Wounds. — Close a wound quickly, and ap- 

ly adhesive plaster; if it bleeds to freely, 

ipply a compress over it, with bandage-; if 

;his fails, tie a bandage tight around the 

imb, above the wound. 

Fainting. — Place the patient on the back, 
vith the head lower than the body, if con- 
enient. Give plenty of air by fanning; dash 
•old water in the face; smell of hartshorn or 
•amplior. Give ammonia or spirits. 

Poison. — If poison of any kind has been ta- 
:en into the stomach, an emetic should be 
given as quickly as possibe. Mustard and 
irarm water, or salt and warm water, or ipec- 
ac, are effectual. Of the latter, give sixty 



grains. If vomiting, drink freely of warm 
water or warm milk, until the stomach is 
thoroughly washed out. 

Burns. — If clothing takes fire, the person 
should be thrown to the ground or floor, and 
without delay rolled in the carpet or hearth- 
rug to stifle the flames. If no carpet or 
hearth-rug is at hand, use your coat instead. 
Keep the flames from the face and lungs as 
much as possible. Yen can generally accom- 
plish this by beginning to wrap about the 
neck and shoulders first. 

Eves. — If particles of cinder or dust get 
into the eyes, they can generally be removed 
by holding a knitting-needle or a small stick 
over the upper lid, close to or under the edge 
of the orbit; then, holding it firmly, gently 
turn the lid upward and backward over the 
needle or stick. If the eye-ball is moved by 
the sufferer, the substance is revealed, and 
can be removed by the corner of a silk or 
linen handkerchief. 

Drowning. — As soon as the body is recover- 
ed, it should stripped of all clothing, rapidly 
dried, placed on a bed previously warmed, the 
head, neck and shoulders raised a little, fric- 
tion with the dry hands used to the extremi- 
ties, and heated flannels applied to the rest of

IMPRESSIONS OF A DAY. 



That was noble advice which the novelist 
larles Kingsley gave when he said, " Try, if 
u can, not to pass a day without either read- 
2 a beautiful poem, or hearing a beautiful 
ng, or seeing a beautiful picture." We vent- 
e to think this may yet be improved upon, 
it relates to the culture of self and our re- 
ptive faculties. But it is more blessed to 
re than to receive. So we would say, let us 
r not to pass a day without doing some beau- 
ul deed of love, however humble; without 
ying some beautiful word of kindness, bow- 
er quiet or unostentatious; or without show- 
others the beautiful picture of consistent 
aracter. So we shall be writing poems for 
d, not only reading men's poems; compos- 
y songs for angels, not only hearing for our 
Sasure; and painting pictures for eternit}' - , 
t merely contemplating the fading pictures 
time. 



HEALTH SUGGESTIONS. 



Fo have good health, avoid excesses; be 
Tular in the time of eating, sleeping, and 
thing. See that your dwellings, and par- 
lularly your sleeping apartments, are proper- 
ventilated; avoid exposure to the night air, 
50 excessive nervous or muscular effort. 
A dark house, wherever found, is always an 
healthy one, and more likel} r a dirty one, too. 
ant of light discourages growth, promotes 
rofula, encourages consumption, and, in fact, 
erything which is bad. Light is second in 
iportance to fresh air. 

Do not eat breakfast immediately after ris- 
^; the stomach is in no condition to receive 
)d. Let the breakfast and supper be light, 
serving strong food, as meats, etc., for the 



middle of the day. Eat slowly, and masticate 
thorough^. Drink very little fluid during 
meals. If taken an hour after meals, they 
assist digestion. 

In hot weather, when a person is heated, 
cold water should only be taken in small 
quantities at a time. If taken in quantity, 
prostration is likely to ensue, and if not, it 
lays the foundation for other troubles. When 
the body is heated or exhausted, a bath of 
cold water ought never to be taken. A sponge 
bath in tepid water will answer until the vigor 
of 'the body has had time to be restored. 



THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS. 



One of my neighbors, in town and church is 
an old lady, whose dress is of a st} r le belong- 
ing to no period of fashion. I wonder, some- 
times, if for forty years the cost of it has ex- 
ceeded as many dollars. Her step is as light 
as a girl's, her manner bright and cheery, and 
over her otherwise homely face spreads the 
glow of a heart at peace with God. Her youth 
was spent in a struggle for daily bread and 
scarcely was this pressure removed before she 
was called upon to mourn the loss of first one 
and then another loved member of her family, 
until she had outlived every relative. Her 
home is plain, almost bare of the luxuries con- 
sidered as indispensible to comfort, yet there 
is not one from whom I so much enjoy a visit 
as this solitary woman, ever so warm in greet- 
ing, so cheerfully companionable 

"There is so much heart's-ease about you," 
I once said to her, "that it refreshes me to 
meet you. Why, you are the youngest and 
happiest person I have seen to-day ! " 

"Oh, yes," she replied, smiling, "I have 
stopped growing old, for each day brings me 
nearer the the possession of endless youth, in 
my better home. And how can I be sad in 
this beautiful world where my Heavenly Fa- 
ther has placed me?" 

" Still } t ou have seen your full share of trials 
and sorrows." 

"Yes, I have surely passed through the val- 
ley of Baca, but through the grace of God I 
have been able to make it a well. But, un- 
friend," she continued, "I have been happy 
only since I ceased to strain after what was 
beyond my reach, and resolved no longer to 
hug to my bosom my griefs and disappoint- 
ments, but to take them all to God, and Leave 
them with Him, and content to be what He 
wishes, and onlv that,"

ITEMS ABOUT THE PRESIDENTS. 



'resident Arthur was 53 years old on his 
g birthday. He was born October 5th, 1830. 
-President Hayes was born October 4th, 
2. The only other President born in Octo- 
was John Adams, who was born on the 
h, and was 62 years old when he was inau- 
•ated. 

Jarfield, Pierce and Polk were born in No- 
aber; Andrew Jackson and Martin Van 
-en in December; Millard Fillmore in Janu- 
Abraham Lincoln, William H. Harrison 
I George Washington in February; Jack- 
, Tyler and Madison in March; Grant, 
fcanan, Monroe and Jefferson in April ; John 
jincy Adams in July, Zachary Taylor in 
)tember. 

Ls to deaths — Garfield in September; John- 
Van Buren, Taylor, Monroe, Jefferson and 
m Adams in July; Buchanan, Polk, Jack- 
and Madison in June; Pierce in October, 
lmore in March, Tyler in January, John 
incy Adams in February, and George Wash- 
Ion in December. 

xrant was our youngest President having 
sn 47 years old at the time he was inaugu- 
ed. Franklin Pierce came next at the age 
49. Then came Garfield, Fillmore and 
Ik, each 50. Then Tyler and Arthur, both 
years old, and both Vice-President, sue 
ding to the Presidency by the deaths of 
jsidents. Lincoln was 52 years old when 
aigurated; James Madison, 54; Hayes and 
n Buren, 55; Andrew Johnson, 57; Monroe, 
ferson and John Quincy Adams, 58; George 
ishington, 59; Andrew Jackson, 62; Zaeh- 
T Taylor, 63; John Adams, 65; James Bu- 
inan, 66, and William H. Harrison, 68. 
Df these men Garfield, Grant, Pierce, Tay- 
, Polk, Harrison, Jackson and Washington 



bore the title of general and had militaiy 
reputations. All of them had been in the 
government employ in some capacity before 
their nomination, and some, such as Van Buren, 
Jefferson, Monroe and the two Adamses, had 
years of training in the cabinets preceding 
them. 

John Quincy Adams received a salary from 
the United States Government for 69 3-ears, 
and the sum total must have amount to $500,- 
000. At the close of his Presidential term, 
he had had 52 }^ears of office holding, and his 
salaiy had aggregated $425,000; still, he had 
17 years of Congress after this, and died at 
the Capitol at a Congressional session. At 
the age of 14, he went to Russia as the private 
secretary of the American Legation, and he 
was in after years Minister to England, Ger- 
many, Portugal, Russia, and the Netherlands. 



SUNSHINE IN THE HOME. 



We built a house not long ago with some 
forty or more windows in it, but we placed no 
blinds within or without the windows. We 
believe that sunshine within the home is at 
once a help to the body, and a constant inspi- 
ration to the soul. Let us have light, and let 
us have it abundantly. 

A friend complained to us the other day of 
wakefulness and weariness. We had occasion 
to look into the apartment where so mam* wea- 
ry wakeful hours were passed. We found the 
room dark as a sepulchre. Windows and blinds 
were closety closed. The air was malodorous 
and must}'. We urged the thorough ventila- 
tion and illumination of that chamber. The 
benefits of the change were immediately per- 
ceived. Let us have sunshine in our homes, 
even though the roses on the carpet fade. It 
is easier to replace them than to paint again 
the lily and the rose upon the face. — Dio Lewis. 



A HINT TO YOUNG MEN. 



Nothing in the long run can be more unsat- 
isfactory in your lady friend than mere good 
looks. Unless she possesses something more, 
her fair face is likely to become unfair a little 
after thirty. Then the disappointment will be 
complete — I mean if your investment is made 
m a stock of "good looks. ,? Better a thous- 
and times that 3-our choice should be a woman
